Nanoscale parts get binding aid

Abstract:
Nanoscale particles that are easy to manufacture piecemeal - but hard to assemble - may benefit from a new "sticky patch" technology that researchers at the University of Michigan say enables nanoscale self-assembly.
"By mimicking biological assembly, we are exploring ways to nanoengineer materials that are self-assembling, self-sensing, self-healing and self-regulating," said Sharon Glotzer, an associate professor of chemical engineering on the Ann Arbor campus. (more on earleir article)
